Arnold Clavio trends on Twitter for alleged racist remark against the Azkals

GMA-7 broadcast journalist Arnold Clavio drew flak for his alleged racist remark against the Philippine Azkals.

In the morning show Unang Hirit, the hosts, which include Clavio were discussing about the harassment case filed by Cristy Ramos against the Azkals.

“Sana nag sorry, sorry na lang talaga ‘di ba.. na ‘di ko kayo ka-kultura.. kasi wala dito’t wala dito (pointing to the chest and head), ‘di naman kayo Pilipino e, nagpapanggap lang kayong kayumanggi, hindi kayo dito lumaki. Mahirap ‘yun. Insensitive,” he said.

The irony of it was he said insensitive and yet he didn’t consider the feelings of the other members of the Azkals when he said “di naman kayo Pilipino e, nagpapanggap lang kayong kayumanggi.”

Let’s give Clavio the benefit of the doubt that maybe his intention was good but he should have aired his opinion in a more tactful manner.

What’s your take on this?
